The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents perhaps the most sweeping change in data protection regulation in 20 years. Designed to address weaknesses in existing privacy regimes and with the potential for substantial penalties for non-compliance, the GDPR will apply to all or nearly all multinational organizations in May of 2018. What differentiates this regulation from well-established ones in the U.S. (such as HIPAA or SOX) is its unified approach to privacy and security, combing them into a single discipline designed to protect personal data.
Under the GDPR, every use of such data must be identified, legally justified, and protected from misuse by legitimate users as well as from theft. This approach has led to requirements beyond traditional technical controls, including Privacy by Design and by Default, the Right to Data Portability, and the Right to be Forgotten. What can organizations do to accelerate the process of accurately locating, classifying and remediating personal data across their network and cloud environments?
In this webinar, guest Forrester Research Analyst, Enza Iannopollo, and Scott Giordano, the Director for Data Protection and Managed Privacy Solutions at Robert Half Legal, will discuss the implications of the regulation and share their perspectives on effective compliance in advance of the deadline including how Data Classification can help accelerate and adequately meet the regulatory requirements.
